Works fine for few weeks...
This is very low quality product, I bought 4 units, two simply stop working and the other two work erratically. And it seems these are damaging the harddisks
This is a comment for mekkano. There is no way these units can damage an hdd or ssd, except maybe an exterior hdd scratch or scuff. The connection do not use pcb and are simply like using sata cable extensions. Now if they stopped working or working erratically that would be very odd. And if that is true i would guess cheap sata cables are the cause. Its easy to check for a tech or people who have a multi-meter with continuity check. Disconnect the rack and touch meter to each side of the sata connectors and pins. Check for shorts between pins, check for no continuity between front and rear pins and most of all look at pins to see if they are damaged. Then if all else seems fine then try new sata cables and not cheapo's from some sites. you do get what you pay for and some sata cables use really small wire guage in the cables. so buy decent cables. And do not test like I said until unit is disconnected from computer and drive. And if the units are faulty contact support and see what they suggest. Hope this helps you and others
Great Item ! Fast delivery
As a reseller, I am concerned mainly by two things, the first is to receive a good quality items corresponding exactly to the description and the second to receive them fast !
Can't be beat!
Just installed and using it in minutes. It's standard StarTech construction, which is better than most generic equipment but down a grade from a factory HP or Dell item. Only beef is that the insertion rating is listed at 50,000 on the website but only 10,000 in the manual. At one insertion per week that's a difference of 700 years, I'm not happy!
Response from StarTech.com:
Thanks for letting us know! The HSB100SATBK is rated for 50, 000 insertions, we've updated the manual.
